Rra Dinare

Okavango Delta

Rating: Mid-range    

Rra Dinare overview

Rra Dinare lies in the south eastern Okavango Delta in the Gomoti area. There are eight delightful, spacious safari tents including one family tent to house the guests. They've been thoughtfully designed and purposely positioned to look out over the Gomoti River floodplains, so you can keep any eye out for wildlife action from the comfort of your tent. This private concession is known for buffalo, elephant, lion and even leopard. 

Inside, the bed takes centre stage, there are sliding doors to separate the bedroom and living area where you'll find comfy seating and a writing desk.  Curtains draw across the mesh windows, and the front tent flaps open fully onto your private deck.  You can sleep with the tent flaps up or down allowing the breezes to flow through while the mesh keeps the insects out and the sliding doors will deter any larger animals.  To the rear of the tent is the en-suite with toilet, basins and there's the nice touch of an outdoor shower too.

Most of the tents are linked to the main areas by means of a raised wooden walkway. In the main areas which are open sided and covered by thatch, you'll find the bar area, a relaxing lounge and also the dining area. Dining also takes place on the deck, under the stars. The swimming pool and curio shop complete the camp, not forgetting the fire pit, where guests and guides gather of an evening to swap stories in front of the 'bush tv' as they enjoy a nightcap before bed.

Life isn't dull in this beautiful area of the Okavango Delta. Explore in open 4x4 vehicles on both day and night game drives. Water activities are also offered in the form of mokoro excursions though these can be subject to seasonal water levels. Game walks are a favourite past time for many, it gets you close to nature, it's a great way to learn more about the land, the wildlife and your guide.

Mr. Anthony Rutter

"The remote camp. The social atmosphere at dinner. The very knowledgeable Mark and his incredible 4 x 4 driving. Of course all the animals. Leopards, Lions, Wild Dogs to name just a few."

Mrs. Laura Rumelhart
"Kudos to Parks, Mark and Andy for a perfect stay - our favourite"
Mr. Eric Stelfox (08/05/2019)
"Great lodge, great guide but with average food. There is a drought and no water so the water based activities were not available. These were replaced by game drives. First time we had seen the big five in one location. "
Mr. Daniel Auty
"A massive highlight impeccable service, amazing accomodation, food brilliant and saw all we could on activity drives guided by highly skilled informative guides. "
Mrs. Rachel Taylor
"We actually stayed at their new lodge, rather than Rra Dinare - the new lodge being called Under One Botswana Sky. The lodge was really luxurious and we loved it! There are four lodges within this Eastern Delta reserve and they do work in conjunction with each other - so if you spot an animal which will be of interest to others, you can count on at least three other vehicles turning up to see it. Sometimes this didn't always seem quite right in terms of the animals...."
